  • Derivative Citizenship

    Oh, I forgot to add that I certainly have enough qualifiers to apply for citizenship at this point, but the money to apply is quite hefty at $675.00. So this is a huge factor, not to mention I feel there may have been a mistake made here as far as determination of citizenship. Thanks again!

        Hi FSN,

        I wrote to the state dept telling them that I thought there may have been a mistake regarding my citizenship back in 1964. Please read the response they sent me;

        If you were born in Canada in 1964 to a Canadian father and an American mother, you acquired U.S. citizenship at birth pursuant to the former Section 301(a)(7) of the Immigration and Nationality Act if you can demonstrate that your mother had been physically present in the United States for ten years prior to your birth, at least five of which were after she had reached the age of 14. Unfortunately, the law is rather precise on this point. If your mother lacks the requisite physical presence by a few months, as you suggest, you regretfully do not have a claim to U.S. citizenship.

          I am sure what ever time you mother had done on her Physical Presence I have a feeling that some one had made a mistake at some place in calculations...its not very straight adding . That is done like:
          I Mary Johnson was born on April 23, 1939..at...
          New York, U.S. Moved in U.S. in some states....
          Years---Months--Days. Total= Y---M---D.
          1939-40 06 26 = 1---2--04
          1940-45 05 10 = 4--11--10
          Total------------------------6--01--14
          Now in the same manner you had to do the time she had lived in Canada...See what you come up with...
